Planning on upgrading your wardrobe? Get rid of some old gear to help save on something new.
H&M and M&S both have schemes that let you swap old clothes for vouchers. It’s a great way to clear the clutter and save at the same time. Plus it’s far better that items go to charity or are recycled than adding to a landfill.
Make sure you also read Becky’s blog of Six alternative ways to save on fashion.
Take any bag of unwanted clothes into an H&M shop and you’ll be given a £5 voucher to spend. Your old items are recycled.
There is a £25 minimum spend with the voucher, though you don’t need to have any H&M products to get the voucher.
You can read more about the project and how it works.
M&S and Oxfam’s Shwopping Clothes Exchange
Hand over your old gear at an Oxfam and you’ll get a £5 voucher to spend on clothes in Marks and Spencers.
One item must be labelled M&S, and you can only use the voucher in the same calendar month. There’s a minimum £35 spend and it’s only valid on clothing, home or beauty.
Do you know of any other schemes that do this? Let me know below!
You can also save at M&S by using a discounted gift card from the website Zeek. People sell their unwanted vouchers and codes on this site, and there’s often as much as 10% off the Marks & Spencers e-cards. Though the code is online only, you can use it to buy a physical card from M&S website.
PLUS if you’ve not used Zeek before, the code CLEVERCASH will give you a free £5 to spend!
